Brownsea 22 is a unique and exciting hands-on residential camp program design to teach youth leadership skills through the practice of Scout skills. Brownsea concentrates on camping, hiking, nature study, pioneering, and cooking. This course closely parallels the first Scout camp conducted by Lord Baden Powell in 1907. This program places special emphasis on Scout skills, teaching and practice; the purpose of Scouting; and the role of the patrol method within the troop program. It is not done by classroom lecture, but rather by programs of skill, leadership exercise, and patrol competition. Scouts who complete the program will have a better awareness of their own strengths and weaknesses for their personal leadership styles.
The Brownsea Scouts will sleep in tents, prepare their own meals by the patrol method and will be expected to live and act as First Class Scouts. The Brownsea 22 Troop has a maximum of 32 Scouts and all participants must be First Class or above and have attended a one-week summer camp experience. Scouts should be between 13-16 years old.
The Scouts and Troop leader/parent will be required to attend a Brownsea meeting TBD. At this meeting, leaders will answer specific questions and the Scouts' skills will be assessed to deliver the best program for their level.
All scouts must complete a course application and health form which will be emailed to you after registering.
Held at New England Base Camp, 411 Unquity Rd., Milton, MA
